Focus On Life Week 18 - Abstract



It's week 18 at the Focus On Life blog challenge and this weeks topic is abstract. This week we were encouraged to step outside reality. I rarely edit my photos let alone play with effects. So I decided to open on photoshop and play. The above photo was a raw bead photo that I played with, layered, tweaked and adjusted. Trying to work towards something very abstract. What do you think?

I had never really utilized any of the effects in photoshop elements either and I think you did far better than I did.

You sure got Photshop to work for you. It looks like a watercolor in progress. Great job!

You really make it appear really easy with your presentation however I in finding this matter to be really something which I think I'd by no means understand. It kind of feels too complex and extremely wide for me. I am having a look forward in your subsequent submit, I will attempt to get the cling of it!

Pretty cool- I'm not seeing the bead at all!

I never ever would have guessed it was a bead. It looks to me like an ariel view of fire and smoke!!

Totally abstract. I would have never guessed that was a bead. The colors and shape of what you created definitely evoke a feeling. . .and that's what abstract is supposed to do right?
